In 2011, I wrote in these pages that Pokey LaFarge "slicks his hair back, wears a baggy suit and generally looks like a character in Boardwalk Empire." The producers of the show apparently concurred; LaFarge's version of the old pop standard "Lovesick Blues" played during the closing credits of a Season 3 episode last year. LaFarge, who hails from St. Louis, keeps it old-timey, mixing ragtime, Dixieland, blues and folk. Nucky Thompson would approve.

Saturday, February 9, at Davey's Uptown Ramblers Club.
